Defining Software Professionalism

Speaker: Paul Pagel

Deciding what actions are morally correct and which ones don't fit is a problem as old as society itself.  Given a community, how do we set standards?  This talk will walk through some basic ethics and dive in too how to use ethics to discover what professionalism in software looks like.

    John Rawls' Veil of Ignorance is perfectly built-in to software development. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veil_of_ignorance_%28philosophy%29 This is pretty awesome, IMO.

    From the description, shouldn't this talk be entitled "Software Ethics"? The Roman gladiators were certainly professional, but were they ethical? Are you claiming Professional is the same as Ethical?
